It's been an different week this week, as you know I finished up at my old job on Wednesday. This is the first time I've been unemployed for almost 4 years! It's good (it'll only last til Monday - when I start my new job).
But I have had some time to just chill out, read my book in the park, walk my dog, do some cooking (smartie cookies, anyone??) and hang out with one of my friends. I don't have a lot of friends, I have a few close ones who are very precious to me. In high school, I was the nerdy one who'd read in her lunchtime (and the one who would miss school and smoke...ahem, that's a story for another day!), but there are a few people I met there whom I'm still friends with today!
They've been there for me when I needed them, and I've been there for them too.
So I thought this quote was appropriate for today:
"The most I can do for my friends is simply to be their friend.
I have no wealth to bestow upon them.
If they know that I am happy in loving them,
they will want no other reward.
Is not friendship divine in this?"
- Henry David Thoreau
So, are you someone who has lots of friends? Or a few close ones? Do you tell them how much they mean to you?
